Beer ‘n’ Pretzels Autumn 2012 ticket: event hosted by Spirit Games.

As I write, this gaming weekend is still ongoing, though not all the TMG crew could make the second day. Sid Orpin is running an adventure using Jeff Freels‘ excellent and charming role-playing system, Bean!

Beer 'n' Pretzels Autumn 2012

Tavernmaster Games visit Beer ‘n’ Pretzels Autumn 2012 in the splendid town hall of Burton On Trent.

Yesterday, however, it was time for Tunnels & Trolls! I ran my new dungeon, Stone Dragon Solstice, for Simon, Sid, both Andys and Guy, a passer-by who joined in. It’s an adventure with plenty of fun gimmicks and it went very well, with many laughs and surprises along the way. I won’t give details, as the adventure will soon be available on this site as a freebie download, so some readers might end up playing it and need to be kept in the dark! But special praise must go to Guy for being an incredibly good sport under trying circumstances inflicted on him by an evil Game-Master. Here he is at the end of his 6-hour ordeal – still smiling:

Guy triumphant!

It ain’t called Beer ‘n’ Pretzels for nothing…

Ah, the old Tridentine…


The players will try anything to read the scroll…

A Busy Table

Gamers love clutter…

An interesting surprise was a passing visit from a fellow who turned out to be John Harrington, who older readers might know as the erstwhile editor of the T&T-oriented fanzine Take That You Fiend! And by offering copies of my book of Tunnels & Trolls limericks we collected a few pounds in donations for Jeff’s Transplant Fund – please give if you can.

Here’s the whole crew. Maybe next year we’ll see you there too!

The delvers!

Guy, Simon, Jason (yours truly), Andy H, Sid and Andy J.
